Classical Guitar Sa www.guitarsa.co.za is now a resource site only and contains no commercial sections. I have designed the site for amateur CG enthusiasts and update it weekly. Please have a look and share the site with anyone you think may benefit from it. It would also be great if you could subscribe to the site and thus receive an automatic email every time I post to the JOURNAL section (articles, videos, new material etc.) I would also welcome articles, videos and recommendations.
I have really enjoyed the new site Classical Guitars SA, one of the articles I read was called "Humidity and your classical guitar" by Christopher Peppler. Living in Canada with our varied seasons, I do worry about my guitar drying out. I have put a small container in my guitar case with a wet sponge inside, although this method solely relies on me keeping on top of it. What I did learn from reading this article and just might consider doing in the future is to mix approximately 1/2 water to glycol propylene in the sponge. They advise that this combination will not only help control the amount of moisture released from the sponge but also will remove any excess moisture as needed. It also will deter any mold from developing as this solution is known as an anti fungal agent. I will definitely be investigating this idea further & in the meantime will be reading more articles on this wonderful site. If you haven't done so I urge you to check it out.
